Baldock wins Championship Goal of the Month

Sheffield United defender George Baldock is the Sky Bet Championship Goal of the Month winner for February, receiving 56 per cent of the public vote.

Sprinting into the area to meet a fizzing cross during the Blades' 4-0 win over Swansea on February 19, Baldock timed the ball perfectly on his instep to send it scudding home off the underside of the bar.

Baldock said: "It is obviously the best goal I've ever scored and honestly it is going to take some beating, isn't it?!

"I spoke with David McGoldrick after the game, and I just don't know how strikers have the composure to enjoy the moment when they score because as everyone saw I just went absolutely crazy.

"I didn't know where I was or what I was doing as soon as the roar goes up from the crowd it just become a blur."

Lead Sky Bet EFL Goal of the Month judge and Sky Sports pundit Don Goodman said: "It's not every week that one of our Goal of the Month contenders makes it onto the official Twitter account and its 14.9 million followers, but that's exactly what happened with this stunning volley from George Baldock.

"The scissor finish alone was worthy of winning this award, but when it was the culmination of a 10-pass move which cut through the Swansea team, it's no surprise to see that it ran away with the public vote."
